FOREWORD 



.. ' This publication is the 6th, in a series of statistical 
summaries on Floflda vegotables. Through joint efforts of 
the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, U. S, Department of 
Agriculture and the Agricultural Economics Department of the 
University of Florida' its scope has been considerably e::panded 
by the inclusion of county production and production costs in 
specified areas. This cooperation has- been in effect since 
1945, It is the purpose of this publicatit^n to present a 
jsuminary of the imny reports that rrere issued currently during 
the season, together irith historical data for comparative 
purposes. 

Hessrs. J. B. 0\Tens, Agricultural Statistician of the 
Bureau -of Agricultural Economics-, U, S, Department of Agri- 
culture and G, P, Hose, Agricultural Economist of the University 
of Florida assigned to the Orlando office of the Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics collaborated in^tho collection and 
analysis of data for the preparation of regular scheduled esti- 
mates of acreag'e, production, and price of Florida vegetables. 
Per. acre, cost of production and- returns. v;ere made by Donald 
I, Brooke, Agricultural Economist of the University of Florida, 
I!r,' F-ose assembl-ed and edited the publication. Miss Arlenc 
Kruse out the stencils for the bulletin.

T/e iTould like to take this occasion to gratefully acknovrl- 
edge our indebtedness to each person and- or-ganization contri- 
buting to the development of those data. Their cooperation 
make these reports possible. With tha exception of shipment 
information, the data contained in. this report are estimates 
and are based on reports by, and intervier-s rrith, gror;ers, 
shippers, marketing associations- and organizations, seedsmen, 
railroad representatives, cannors and' other processors, the 
Agricultural Extension Service through its comtj'- agricultural 
agents, the Federal-State Inspection and Ilarket Nevrs Services, 
the Florida State Marketing Bureau, the Florida State Marketing 
Board, the production and Marketing ^/Idininistration- and other 
v/ell iitformed sources.

SEASOF/iL C-R0IJPIHG5. -.. In-- order- that c-ompetitivd production rdthin the State of 
Florida aiid the United States may be classified on a National basis, under reasonably 
vmiform groups, i.'e have established a National- pattern lyhich is, bas-od on the most- 
active harvesting periods. These major groups are V.TNTER, SPRIITG, SUl.H.CCR, and FALL. 
Tht) ini'MER" group, includes the months of January, - February, and March; SPRING 
includes April, May, and June; SUIiliER includes July, August, and September (Florida 
carries no official sum-mer coritmercial crops); and FALL includes October, November, 
and December, These- periods are not rigidly fi:;ed and the harvesting period for a- - 
particular grouping may extend over into the preceding or follovring group; Hov.rever, 
in arranging our data rra have follovred these groupings in so far .-as it is practical. 
For example, it has boon considorod practical to" carry ' cabbage, carrots, caulifloi/er 
es^carole, green peas, and strav.'borries as one season crops, designating them IVINTER 
since the volume, production is harvested generally during Jaiiuar;^'-, "February, and 
March. ; So far,' .sv.-eet corn has only been carried as a spring crop since the bulk of 
the crop "is "harvested during -April, May, eaid 'June but it is possible v/-inter produc- 
tion can" reach, the .point v.'here it r.-ill" be nocessai^'- to make the estimates on a more 
seasonal basis. Since, s cane systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed 
best for all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis even though 
they may not al /aj'-s agree vrith some local designations nor.'- in use, 

PLANtUD ACRg^E -. Ihe definition f or ..pleai ted " acreage is based on a "loss of crop" 
concept. Estimates . of planted e.c res for any seasonal roup in g consist of ac re s for 
harvest (see next page) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage 
planted for harvest during the; -seasony but r/hi'fi'h v/as lost or destroyed and. did not 
produce a, crop in . the seascn uiider consideration. " If the acreage is lost and not 
replojite.d it is counted as- planted. If it i's lost ¥ut' replanted f or harvest in the 
same" sea'sbn as "the original~acreage v/ould have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. HCT-.^over, if the acreage lost is 
replanted for harvest in a later season, it is considered as plante d for both 
seasons and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. 



AC ? 3c. 70?^ MJIVES T ' - Hiis is considered as . •boinis all acreage from -..-hich a crop could 
have been "harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc,) 
i7arranted' the harvest. It includes mature acreage on v.'hich the harvest t.'as post- 
pcaied: or- delayed- too long due to economic reasons and the production lost thereby. 
Acreage -which produces such lotr yields or poor oualit^"- that the crop is not v;orth 
pibkin^ at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not included in 
the 'acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage v;hich produces yields v;hich •'.rould be 
harvested at -reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest, 

: ECOFOIIi:c ABAI^POHiIEyT - This category includes mature production not harvested 
because of economic factors, such as lov; prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss 
of production includes ■ quantities left in fields partially harvested as v/ell as pro- 
duction on acreage -abandoned -for . economic reasons. Acreage abandaied at any stage 
of grov.rfch be f ore maturity will be considered as loss of acreage or crop f ailure 
rather thai: economic abandonment of production. . . 

Y IELD ' - - Yield refers to total -Production of nerchan table quality produced on an acre 
basis and may include some unharvested production, left in fields for economic 
reasons. 

PRODTJC TIOH - Total production represents the yield" times (X) the acres f or harvest . 
Production of value is that part of the production v/hich vas hai'vested and sold or 
utilized v.'hile in the fresh state ax).d does not include economic abandonment, 

UITIT VALUE 02 PPJCE - All prices used in this report are cn an F,0,B, basis or its 
e.auivalent, loss soiling charges. In the case of some commodities v;hich are sold in 
ur.it3 other than the one listed, the.se units are converted into tiie equivalent of 
the ones used, 

TOTAL VALUE - Tlie total value is the price per unit times (X) the production of value 

CAI^TED -OP. -PROCESSED ACREAGE MD PHODUCTIOF - The acreage of vegetables in Florida . 
planted solely for canning and processing purposes, during the period covered by this 
publication has been confined principally to cucujnbers for pickles. The acreages of 
beans and tomatoes, the principal crops canned, are planted primarily for fresh 
market but during recent years substaiitial quantities have been canned. In order to 
conform to the ITational pattern for recording the fresh and processed production of 
these t^TO crops, v.-'o have shoi'/n the equiv a le nt acreage on v.'hich this processed pro- 
duction -i-'ould have been grovn and listed the remainder as acreage grovm for fresh 
market production. 

COSTS /giD PS TURKS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - Those tables represent the 
summarization of grov;er records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from .. 
several vegetable crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 194S-50 
season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. Both costs and 
returns are computed on the basis of acreage harvested and v;eather losses or econom- 
ic abandonment have not been considered. In so far as possible, grov/lng ond har- 
vesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded from costs of materials.
